1718 Migration: New Website Launched

A new website is being launched to mark the first organised migration in 1718 from Ulster to America.

Colin Brooks from Pennsylvania attended the launch and tells Liam Logan about his contribution to the site.

Dr Linde Lunney of the Ulster-Scots Agency also talks to Liam about her interest in connections between New Hampshire and North Antrim - and reads a poem, written in Scots, by Robert Dinsmoor who lived in New Hampshire.
